Paleo nut bars 1

We’re On a Cover of a Magazine! Paleo Nut Bars Recipe.

Look at us! We are on the cover of our favourite local magazine: City News! As you can imagine we are somewhat (EXTREMELY) excited about this, our message is getting out there (…and the photos turned out awesome…PHEW!)

We were pretty nervous as this was our first real life interview…but the afternoon was actually a lot of fun. Laura, Silas and Brent came over to the merrymaker household for the interview where we talked and talked and talked all things fit + healthy + paleo (so yes,  we were in our element).  We apologise to Laura, as she recorded the interview…we’re really not sure how she would have deciphered our voices as we pretty much sound exactly the same…no one ever knows who it is when we answer the phone.

We get a lot of “Hi urghh Ca-Em…Em-la…oh who am I talking to…?”

Of course we had a delish selection of our favourite paleo goodies on offer. Our choc-raspberry no bake cake (drool…get. in. our. tummies), our all time fave: paleo hummus and crackers as well as our new raw super food bars. We received great feedback from the City News team about all three yummies (thanks guys!) and even learnt a thing or two from (paleo) Silas!

After the interview we were on such a high and realised, this is exactly what we want to do. So the exciting news is…we are now beginning to work on our first e-book.  We are in very early stages but it should be hitting your screens soon!

Have a read of the article and let us know what you think! While your reading, why not munch on some paleo nut bars…NOT our raw super food bar (these are being trialled and tested until they are perfected) but these taste amazing…from what we can remember, they taste just like a snickers bar…quick. go! make! CREATE!

Always merrymaking,

  1. Great article girls! Well done!! I definitely want to try your hummus and crackers. Just a question… why do you not use olive oil? Looking forward to more recipes and exercise tips! Love it!

    1. Hi Miss_d! Thanks for the feedback. Enjoy the paleo crackers and hummus! Coconut oil has a huge array of health benefits (you can google this!) and that’s why we choose to use it. We use olive oil in a lot of our dressings and foods that don’t require heating as we love the flavour of olive oil! Plenty more recipes coming your way! e & c

  2. Picked up the City News and read your article today. So exciting seeing the “paleo” word spread in a really positive way. Congratulations!

  6. I whipped these up yesterday using tahini in the place of nut butter (it was either that or peanut butter and I thought tahini would be more paleo friendly)- sooo delicious!! Love the hint of saltiness- very moorish!
